Blake’s personal celebrity diet coach shed some light on the star’s diet plan to get his groove back. Even though he lost a significant amount of weight, Blake’s decision to work out more was to lose weight in a healthier way. For this, he indulged in some exercises that speed up metabolism in order to burn fat and gain more muscle. His diet coach also admitted to giving him natural metabolism boosting pills with every meal. For his diet, he had to do away with some foods such as fried foods, refined carbohydrates and peanut butter.
